The Cyprus Fiduciary Association (CFA) organised a valuable and practical seminar titled “Rights of Settlor and Beneficiaries under a Trust” on 28 and 29 September 2017 in Nicosia and Limassol respectively.

Our Senior and Managing Partner, Mr Stavros Pavlou made an extensive presentation analysing all matters relating to the role of settlors and beneficiaries under a trust, with particular emphasis on Cyprus International Trusts. Moreover, panellist Mrs Stella Strati, Limited Partner of our law firm, joined the discussions around real case study scenarios, providing attendees with a more practical aspect of the matters involved.

Lawyers, directors and employees of administrative service providers attended the seminar, raised interesting questions and gave a very positive feedback, thus deeming the seminar a huge success.
